NNLM SEA Funding Announcement: All of Us Community Engagement Project Award – 10 Project Awards Available!

Posted by on November 14th, 2018 Posted in: All of Us, Funding


The All of Us Research Program’s goal is to learn how differences between us might lead to different types of treatments. With a goal to have one million people participate in this study, researchers may use this information to improve the health for everyone. As part of a partnership with the All of Us Research Program, the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Southeastern/Atlantic Region (NNLM SEA) is pleased to offer the All of Us Community Engagement Project Award.

Note: Due to an increase in award funding, we are now able to offer 10 Project Awards in the SEA Region instead of 2. Because of that, we are extending the deadline for applications.

Amount: Up to $10,000

Awards Available: Now up to 10 Project Awards!

Application Deadline: Sunday, December 9, 11:59 PM.

The purpose of the SEA All of Us Community Engagement Award is to support libraries for projects that improve health information literacy, improve access to, awareness of, and skills to locate high quality biomedical and health information, and improve understanding and importance in participation of clinical trials, including the All of Us Research program.

Potential Project Ideas

  • Hosting a symposium or panel presentations at public libraries that serve underrepresented or diverse populations on understanding clinical trials, informed consent, and what it means to participate in research.
  • Incorporating NLM health and science information resources and the All of Us Research Program community resources into new or existing health programs within public libraries. See National Health Observances for some ideas.
  • Training programs that educate finding and evaluating consumer health information found on the Internet and incorporate the All of Us Research Program.
  • Placing web-accessible computers in locations where they can be used by under-represented and minority populations to locate health information, free clinics, community health centers, and information on clinical trials, like the All of Us Research Program.
  • Train-the-trainer projects that enhance the skills of library staff and other consumer health information intermediaries to train a target population on locating and evaluating health information, clinical trials and informed consent, or the All of Us Research Program.
  • Exhibiting at community health fairs or presenting at local meetings to promote health literacy, NLM products and services, and the importance of participating in medical research.
  • Other creative ideas that integrate health information outreach and the All of Us Research program are strongly encouraged.

SEA staff are available for consultations. Please email NNLM SEA to schedule an appointment.
